WEPAC 2011


Last night I watched my baby sister scratch something off of her "bucket list". She played basketball on the white WEPAC team as one of the senior high school players

Those of you that don't know what WEPAC is,  go to http://www.wepacthehouse.org  Basically it's this amazing basketball game with high school players, alumni players, college players, and celebrity players, who come together to raise money for cancer screenings for local woman in our area. It's even aired on Fox and it's a BIG DEAL for our small towns.


Since this started 3 years ago, she's wanted to play. And play she did.   I admit I was a bit nervous, wondering how she'd play with the cameras there, college and celebrity players, but nothing seemed to faze her, and she wasn't the least bit nervous and played the game.

And the best hug of the night didn't come from anyone famous. It came from our Dad. So happy he was able to be there!




So very proud of this girl and I just love her to pieces!
